  1. Nice! This poem’s so true, and life will indeed go on.

  2. Well done, Joe. I like the simplicity of this form. When you string a few of these together like verses (quatrains) its also impressive. Glad you gave it a go.

  3. Wow! This is a real-life example.

  4. I also wish to fill up a world.

  5. Enjoyed the simple truth displayed in this, the world will continue to keep on filling up 🙂
